Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

1. their heater is of no use, despite of complaining no help provided, and you desperately need a good heater in 1 degree temperature, i also stayed in paro during this trip and they changed the heater twice on requesting. 2. Wifi gives a speed of 0.5mbps, cant even make whatsapp calling. 3. Tooo soft bed to sleep. 4. Expensive food but food was good.

The property is good. wooden flooring, large bathroom with tub & nice location. The Tashichho Dzong is couple of KM away . And postal muesuem, textile academy , shopping street and immigration office is just walking distance.they have heaters and hot water available which is is big relief for winters. The only downside was the mattresses which were of spring :-( and the breakfast costing was on higher side. But i say go this place if you in thimpu you wont regret

Yes its value for money for a budget hotel, rooms and beds clean and neat, food quality also was good. We were there for only a day as we were on a birding trip so only dinner was possible at the place.

Happened to have two night stay in Thimphu and my tour operator put me in Golden Root. Though the location is good but the amenities in it are the poorest one. Rooms are bad giving fowl smell, shortage of staff, flies are all around. The meals provided is of very poor quality and must avoid to see the kitchen at basement. Very limited food items. No discipline and always noisy atmosphere...better stay in some “Dharamshala”..

10 mins walk from the Main market and just 2 mins by cab. Very clean rooms, amazing view and the staff is very friendly. Food was great at the restaurant too, you will get vegetarian food as well. Reasonable pricing

This is a budget hotel so we didn't expect a lot. This hotel is slightly away from the city's hassle-bustle but still walkable from the main market area and the clock tower square. Hotel is clean, food was good, staffs are helpful and surrounding view is also good. For us the main problem was the thin walls and extra soft bed. We had a road side room on the first floor and anyone talking outside the hotel was clearly audible inside and that disturbed our sleep. But probably that will only be a problem for the first floor, road side rooms. Other than that this is a good hotel and you can safely choose this.

We stayed here for 2 night, and we had comfortable stay in hotel. Some rooms are compact but on request they may shift you to bigger rooms. We travelled in jan-19. it was super chilled so heater in the room was a big help. However Bathrooms are having hot water geyser that was bit of troublesome, as if one person had bath in hot water then it takes 20-25mins for geyser to give hot water again. Overall average hotel.

I went to Bhutan in January 2019 and it was my 1st visit to this beautiful country. I had made the hotel bookings from Make my Trip website and I was a bit skeptical about the kind of rooms we would eventually get upon reaching the hotel. Turns out we were in for a surprise! Not only did we get very nice and clean rooms but the food that was served did not let us feel we were away from our home country (yeah, it was that good!). We stayed there for 2 nights and were very satisfied with the service and the food. It was a good deal that we got from MMT. The owner of the property, Manoj choudhary is also very helpful as he accommodated our request to make changes in the booking dates for the same property in Paro. I would STRONGLY recommend the Thimphu Golden roots hotel to anyone visiting Thimphu!
